Prior to March Break, our Tigers basketball Team finished off their season placing 4th at the AA BC Championships. This final four appearance adds to the storied success of our basketball teams over the past twenty-two years. The York House Tigers have reached the final four at BCs 15 times since 1999. The Tigers defeated Selkirk from Kimberley, BC, in game one and then defeated the Okanagan Champions from Kalamalka in Vernon, BC, in game two. In the semi-final, the Tigers played a rematch of the Vancouver Sea to Sky Final, taking on a very talented Mulgrave team. The Tigers played great, leading much of the second quarter and then trailed by just 3 points after three quarters. However, the depth and size of Mulgrave in the 4th quarter built an 8pt lead behind the amazing play of Grade 10 star and tournament best defensive player, Eva. In game 4, a depleted Tigers team battled hard but did not have enough to defeat SMUS from Victoria.  

Some individual Tigers were recognized at BCs as tournament all-stars. Congratulations to Avery (Grade 12) named second team all-star and to Mila (Grade 12) named first team all-star.

Langley Christian defeated Mulgrave in the Championship final.
